If the attribute name is the same but the nameformat is different I'd
claim that one of those names is in in fact correct. (You may or may
not have the leverage to get the IDP to change that, no idea.)

Not "any" as in a wildcard match, but I think you should be able to
create Attribute elements with the same name (certainly several with
the same "id" value, the default map even ships with such elements)
and have differing nameformat attributes on them (or use the default
of URI on some of them).
